Dear colleagues and friends,
The World Theatre Training Institute AKT-ZENT already has exciting plans for 2024 and would like to announce them early. We are starting in January and February with two acting courses that are already in tune with the theme of the year:
Methods for self-preparation
“Self-preparation” is a topic that Jurij Alschitz has been pursuing for many years and which is perceived as increasingly important and crucial for personal development and career in the present state of society – yet is not taught as a subject at drama schools and academies. The numerous methods are still waiting to be discovered and applied! We invite you to do so with us!
In February, Jurij Alschitz will start a new International Directing Programme. Three modules per year can be freely combined and attended online/hybrid/in presence. We start with “The Director’s Tools” in Berlin. A rare opportunity for everyone, directors and actors, to meet Jurij Alschitz live in the rehearsal space. If it is not possible for you to travel, you can follow the course online.
“Self-Preparation – the secret to success” will be the central theme of our next XIV International Theatre Summer Academy in July/August 2024. An acting and directing course welcomes artists of all ages to Montecreto, Italy.
Please take advantage of the early bird offers, with which we want to enable all colleagues associated with us to participate at a reduced rate. We hope to meet for many inspiring encounters next year.
As always, we are very happy about your word-of-mouth propaganda.
Thank you very much!
24 + 31 January
The SOLO course supports artists who are creating a monologue, a monodrama, a solo performance or their own devised theatre evening. The special thing about it:
3 central themes are discussed together in dialogue with many practical exercises, and are deepened each time afterwards in individual coaching and applied to the personal project.
The 3 topics can also be attended individually:
Above All – Finding, opening, giving voice to your theme
4 March – 29 April
The Vertical of the Role is already a classic in the European Theatre. This method for the actor’s self-preparation was created by Dr. Jurij Alschitz 25 years ago. Over the years it has naturally changed, many steps have been adapted for online teaching and lead to even more self-reliance for the artists.
The actor becomes the author of the role and thus the encounter with the director on the film set or on the first day of rehearsals in the theatre takes place at eye level. This method will help you prepare for a role throughout your life. The clear work steps give you certainty as to which tasks you can set yourself and in what order so that you can grasp a role in all its dimensions.
In addition to the 8 group sessions, all personal questions can be addressed in 2 individual coaching sessions.

Dr. Jurij Alschitz
There are many ways of becoming a director …
This unique hybrid training programme is designed
Jurij Alschitz conveys the elementary knowledge of directing in its comprehensive meaning – as a world view, as an art, as a craft and as a tool.
The Director’s Tools course is about the director’s instrumentarium at the preparation stage, i.e. the underlying methodology for all artistic decisions, especially text analysis and strategies on how to work with the actors.
20 July – 4 August

With its annual International Theatre Summer Academy, the World Theatre Training Institute offers a supplement to drama school programmes and therefore offers both students and professional theatre professionals a unique opportunity for personal advanced training.
Actors, directors, theatre pedagogues and drama teachers are invited to intensively explore and learn the wide range of techniques and methods for self-preparation at the highest professional level.
But first, the Christmas season is just around the corner.
